The Cardinals drained 7 of 11 from beyond the arc to take a 35-26 halftime advantage. Augustine Ene led the way, making 3 of 5 from distance for 11 points. He finished with 12.

The Islanders, who halted a four-game losing streak by beating Abilene Christian 76-67 on Thursday, could not overtake Incarnate Word in the second period.

Joseph Kilgore led the Islanders with 23 points and nine boards. Sean Rhea added 18 points.
